We stayed at Hotel Balance with our 13-month old son for one night - using it as a base to explore the nearby zoo and natural pool on the day we checked in, and taking a short hike from the hotel to the spectacular Gorges du Dailley the morning after.
Our room - the Junior Suite - was very nice indeed. A great size overall with a huge corner bath, separate shower, WC and monster flower-filled balcony. The bed was comfy and we slept well. We just had to move the long entrance rug onto one of the two steps down to the balcony, in order to stop first-born (who's just started walking) from flying down onto the tiles and breaking his face.
The Junior Suite looks out onto the hotel's back garden and bio plunge pool. While the view from the other side of the hotel is undoubtedly spectacular - majestic mountains and the like - we didn't feel like we missed out as the grounds are beautiful: lovely shrubs, flowers, veggies growing every, and a slide etc. for the kids. Plus, best of all, a large adult-sized trampoline (without those annoying vertical barriers around it) for the bigger kids! I loved it.
For me however, the biggest draw was the food - it's all bio, all veggie and totally delicious. Every single thing we ate. From the haricot soup to the beany fruity dip, the veggie strudel, the wondrous salads... it's so nice not even having to think "Hmmm, I wonder if there'll be something I can eat amongst all the meat". It was simply scrumptious, every last mouthful.
The staff - including the two patrons - are delightful and always ready to answer a question or help out (firstborn was particularly taken by the gorgeous female servers!).
Our only issue was of our own doing - we ended up spending more than expected, because we didn't read the hotel's website closely enough and deduced therefore that the Junior Suite was one price, when that was actually the cost per person. Therefore we ended up paying twice what we'd budgeted. But that's not the hotel's fault - we're numpties is all.
So would we go again? Certainly. We just might take a normal room rather than the suite, depending on our finances at the time.
